23 Smiles of the Baby Buddha
The Smiles of the Baby Buddha has been published with the idea that it might serve as a guide to both the beauty and the faults of Ky?ngju, and by extension, an introduction to Korean culture. This book also serves as a good guidebook for foreigners visiting Ky?ngju, and foreigners who come to understand Korean culture and the innate spirit of the People.Whereas many works on Korean cultural sites are little more than guidebooks, Prof. Yu’s work provides the reader with a deeper perspective, explaining each site’s significance instead of merely listing unrelated facts.From the PublisherThis book was designed to allow foreign visitors to have an authentic experience of Kyongju during a two or three-day itinerary. With this in mind, the book has been divided into two se..

21 Seon Thought in Korean Buddhism
Book ReviewsSeon thought in the world of Korean Buddhism has played a very important role. The Seon Dharma was introduced to Korea in the late Silla Dynasty and became very influential and the main philosophy of Korean Buddhism during the middle Goryo Period.In Korean Buddhism, various ways of practice are used by Korean Buddhists, but it is Seon practice which is considered the best.

18 The Zen Monastic Experience
From Kirkus ReviewsA myth-shattering foray behind the walls of a Korean Zen Buddhist monastery. The common Western image of Zen as a religion that features unpredictable, iconoclastic teachers ``bullying their students into enlightenment’’ is, says Buswell (East Asian Languages and Cultures/UCLA), grossly inaccurate. And he should know, having spent five years as a monk at Songgwang-sa, one of the largest Zen monasteries in Korea. Here, deftly weaving scholarship and memoir, Buswell depicts what life in a Zen monastery is really like. Early chapters discuss the history and current status (not terribly vital) of Buddhism in Korea; the course (surprisingly flexible) of a typical monk’s career and of a typical monastic year; and the layout and bureaucracy of Songgwang-sa, plus a loo..
17 Currents And Countercurrents Korean Influences On The East A…
Soon after the inception of Buddhism in the sixth or fifth century B.C.E., the Buddha ordered his small band of monks to wander forth for the welfare and weal of the many, a command that initiated one of the greatest missionary movements in world religious history. But this account of a monolithic missionary movement spreading outward from the Buddhist homeland of India across the Asian continent is just one part of the story. The case of East Asian Buddhism suggests another tale, one in which the dominant eastward current of diffusion creates important eddies, or countercurrents, of influence that redound back toward the center. These countercurrents have had significant, even profound, impact on neighboring traditions. In East Asia perhaps the most important countercurrent of i..
16 Wake up and Laugh
“Wake up! Stop being deceived by your attachments, fears, and dualistic thinking. The truth you are searching for already exists everywhere in your daily life. When you realize this, you’ll laugh until your sides hurt at how much effort you spent to discover that you are yourself!” The wisdom and deep compassion of one of Korea’s foremost Seon(Zen) Masters shines throughout the five Dharma talks that comprise Wake Up and Laugh. With clear insight, Seon Master Daehaeng emphasizes the role of our fundamental mind, our Buddha-nature, across a wide range of topics from family and business problems to death and mental illness. The act of letting go and entrusting, combined with observing and applying what we learn when we allow this letting go to happen, form the cor..
15 The Great Seon Masters of Korea
The objective of publishing the Great Seon Masters of Korea(planned by the Bureau of Missionary Work of the Jogye Order of in 2006) was to introduce the lives and Dharma talks of the great Seon Masters of Korea to the Western world that is mostly not familiar with them. Twnety-five Seon Masters are introduced, starting with the most venerable priests, such as Wonhyo, Euisang, Doui, Jinul, Bo-u, Hyujeong, and the recent great Seon Master Seongcheol. It would be futile to attempt to introduce Korean Buddhism to the world without introducing the great tradition of these great Masters.

No River to CrossTrusting the Enlightenment that’s Always Right HereSoen Master Daehaeng, AuthorIt is often said that enlightenment means "crossing over to the other shore," that far-off place where we can at last be free from suffering.
